Dermatology Q & A
Why should I see a dermatologist?
You should see a dermatologist to keep your skin healthy. Whether you have a specific skin concern like acne or hyperpigmentation or have a personal or family history of skin cancer and need a routine exam, dermatologists like Dr. Smith have the specialized training and experience to diagnose skin conditions and provide the expert treatment you need.
Dr. Smith also offers anti-aging skin treatments like Botox® and laser treatments to help you look as young as you feel. With an effective and physician-recommended skin care regimen, you maintain a youthful appearance for years to come.
What happens during a dermatology consultation?
Your dermatology consultation with Dr. Smith begins like many other medical appointments — with a conversation about your medical history and your concerns. Dr. Smith may use a magnifier and a bright light to get a close look at your mole, acne, wart, or rash.
Once his exam and diagnosis are complete, he’ll discuss your condition with you and create a treatment plan. This may include a prescription for medication to clear your skin of acne or a rash or he may suggest a biopsy for a suspicious mole. The specifics of your plan depend entirely on your needs.
What dermatology services are available?
Dr. Smith offers a comprehensive array of dermatology services. A few of the more common treatments are detailed here.
Botox is a common, FDA-approved, injectable cosmetic treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the small muscles under your skin. Botox treatments take about 20 minutes and don’t require any downtime to recover.
To reduce acne, Dr. Smith offers customized treatment plans that may include prescription face wash and topical creams, prescription medications, and cosmetic treatments like lasers and exfoliation to help your skin stay clear and smooth.
If you’re living with hyperpigmentation like age spots and melasma, Dr. Smith offers customized laser treatments to break up the excess pigment in your skin and restore an even and healthy complexion.
Warts are small skin growths caused by a virus that enters your skin through a small wound like a hangnail or a scratch. Dr. Smith removes warts with treatments that either freeze or burn the wart and kill the virus.
